A Better Way to Retire


Janice Knight says there’s one word to describe living at Glen Woodley Estate Serviced Apartments, kind.

Whether it’s the wonderful staff, friendly neighbours or her easy-to-maintain apartment, Janice is really enjoying a better retirement lifestyle.

“I’m at home here and I’m really living here, I’m not just existing here,” Janice said.

“It means I can have my things around me, I can have visitors, my grandchildren can come to see me - and I can do that when I want to and how I want to.”


“The atmosphere throughout the place is just lovely, the residents are kind to each other and I don’t know how they spread it but the atmosphere is so nice.”


Another part that helps is knowing that while other people have different needs to Janice, she regularly sees the great length staff go to help every resident.

Glen Woodley Estate’s apartments are fully serviced with that little bit of extra care and support while still offering an independent lifestyle.

Serviced Apartment residents enjoy delicious and nutritious lunch and dinner services every day, and a weekly cleaning and linen service. For added peace of mind, each resident is provided with an emergency call pendant and professional and friendly staff are on hand around the clock, each and every day.

Janice moved to Glen Woodley just over one year ago, and she enjoys regular catch-ups over dinner or drinks with fellow residents. She is also enjoying Southern Cross Care’s other service offerings, including the nearby Carmelite Health & Wellness Centre.

Janice says she has already noticed an improvement in her lung capacity, strength and balance, and more importantly, has found the right balance in her retirement lifestyle.
